We’re missing Marty McFly’s giant boom-box, of course, but you get the point.

    Number 5 is sweet with the built-in TV.

  • dos santos

    With a keyboard inclued !! I could never think of that !

  • SreyaNotfilc

    #26 is the raddist. No doubt!

    • Rusty

      26 was from … I think it was a Panasonic ad, but I don’t recall for sure. The point of it was that the speakers in your car could be so good that you’d want to carry them everywhere you go.

      Dashboard is from a Saab 900S.

  • Anon

    Does #20 have a TURNTABLE?! That’s fresh.

    • turbojoe

      yup my boy had that one…..that is "Excalibur"

  • Ken

    I haven’t seen an iPod with disco lights, Baby! #14 FTW.

  • Robi5150

    I bet the battery companies LOVED these things! #14 looks like it would go through 10 D cells in about half an hour.

  • singletrackgeek

    I used to have one of those boomboxes that LL Cool J is leaning on…awesome!

  • ass party

    #10. Yeah, you had to have the Sharp GF-777Z. Its the goddamn holy grail. They’re going for around a K these days.

    • Spunky

  • ifearnoman

  • HellHathNoFury

  • never_to_return

    No one living in the ghetto has ever used the term “rad” to describe anything. Ever.

  • shanique

  • !S!WCRTESTINPUT000000!E!


  • Anomanom

    Lasonic still makes ghetto blasters too. Check the i931 and i931x. Instead of a tape deck its got a socket for your ipod dawg.

  • Dave

    That looks like Kid Freeze from the Dynamic Rockers, in the first photo, rocking the Lee suit and the Cazal glasses. He's credited with inventing the continuous headspin.
